Whether it’s late night group study or an after party craving, there is something about the smell of coffee that jolts you up no matter what time it is. But nothing in the process of making coffee is inviting – not at midnight at least. So here is a list of coffee shops where you can get the brew of the Gods post-midnight:

Where: The Manohar, Begumpet Airport Exit Road, Begumpet, Hyderabad
When it comes to midnight cravings, the easiest place to go, in any city, is the airport. The distance of the Hyderabad airport from the city seems to bother many people. But if you are like me and enjoy late night drives, The Square by Novotel is an excellent option. The last fine dining restaurant on this list, the place will provide you an entire meal, if you are in the mood for it; but stop by for a cup of coffee and you will feel invigorated enough to stay up the entire night.
Cost: INR.2,200 for two people
Where: Novotel Hotels, Hyderabad Airport, Shamshabad, Hyderabad
The only 24 hours café on this list that is not a part of a residential hotel, Brewberry’s Café is a relatively inexpensive option for your midnight fix. The service here is indeed memorable and so is the coffee. It will certainly give you the adrenaline rush you desire at 2am. You must try the cakes along with the coffee.
Cost: INR.450 for two people
Where: Building 9, Raheja IT Park, Hitech City, Hyderabad
So the next time you have a coffee craving post-midnight and are in no mood to make some for yourself, you know where to go.
